ESPAÇO S (SPACE S )

 

In a joint initiative of the Board of the AEFML and the Board of the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Lisbon, and with the support of the Psychiatry and Mental Health Service of the Northern Lisbon University Hospital Centre-SMH, Espaço S was created with the aim of providing psychological support to FMUL Students and promote Mental Health at the Faculty.

After working at the Psychiatry and Mental Health Service of the Northern Lisbon University Hospital Centre – SMH with professionals (psychiatrists, psychologists, etc.) from the service itself for a few years, from September 2017 the space has its own human resources coordinated by Professor Daniel Sampaio, and a service centre at the Institute of Preventive Medicine and Public Health.

The support of the Psychiatry and Mental Health Service of the Northern Lisbon University Hospital Centre – SMH remains, continuing to be a reference service in conjunction with Espaço S.

 

 What is Espaço S?

It is a place where students can address the issues that are essential to their well-being, where they can understand themselves and their problems. A place where students can be themselves, without barriers, where what they think is important is what is really important.

 

Who provides support at Espaço S?

Espaço S has two Clinical Psychologists with no teaching link to FMUL. Thus, the space is intended to be an independent place that allows safeguarding the confidentiality of all who wish to be received.

 

Where will the support be provided?

Espaço S (Space S) works with a mixed regime composed by video conference sessions and one day a week of personal assistance.
